A teacher in New Jersey who’s been entering the “Hamilton” lottery to try to win tickets to the musical every single day for four years is finally going to be able to see the show... thanks to his students.
Tom Corby, a history teacher in New Jersey was floored when his students gave him tickets, and the entire thing was captured on video.
The kids pooled their money to get $600 to buy two tickets for the teachers end of the year present and the teacher was in tears by the gift.
“Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda retweeted the video with the note, “Making your teacher cry happy tears is SO many bonus points for The Good Place. Great job kids. Enjoy Mr. Corby.”
